Module aims

This module aims to enable practitioners from a wide range of care settings to negotiate appropriate learning outcomes to underpin development of specifically identified aspects of their practice which are service improvement orientated. The module offers the student an opportunity to discover and recognise the learning available using a work-based reflective process. In addition to negotiated theoretical outcomes, aspects of skill development/clinical competence might also be included where appropriate.

Module learning outcomes

Individually negotiated and agreed with academic supervisor through formal learning contract.
